Arlington On Tap free monthly series!

Courtesy of Downtown Arlington Management, the Arlington Historical Society, Arlington Proud and Arlington Today Magazine, here’s the upcoming schedule. Tap Talks take place at a revolving series of downtown bars and bistros from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Tuesday, March 19 (A week later than usual because of spring break): Vickie Bryant has made it her life’s work to resurrect not only the legend of the famed Top O’ Hill Casino, but most importantly of all those forces who battled mightily against it. Maverick’s Bar and Grill, 601 E. Main Street.

Tuesday, April 9: Perot Museum’s famed paleontologist Dr. Ron Tykoski unveils a dazzling story of Arlington’s neighborhood as it was 90 million years ago in the first public “reveal” of the most astonishing discoveries related to 2,000 fossils recovered from a north Arlington dig – including a crocodile big enough to munch on a hippo. Hear it at Legal Draft, 500 E. Division at Division and East streets.

Tuesday, May 14: Dallas Morning News consumer affairs columnist Dave Lieber is a busy lad. He also writes books and plays – the latest being “Amon,” a one-man play about legendary Star-Telegram Publisher Amon G. Carter. He’s also a humorist who’ll be talking about his transition from New Yorker to Stetson wearing Texan – no easy task but his Texan accent is sort of close. Division Brewing, 506 E. Main Street.
